of sandy? >> or in the future with regard to others. specifically more on bailout and the effect of national debt. >> it is hard to see that we do not need national regulation in the insurance industry. we certainly have it for the future. it does have advantages. we still have state security regulators. we have an oversight by there. this ties back to the financial industry. you have to have proper reserves in the insurance industry. i would say with respect to bailout, they are creating an environment where they do not have to do bailouts. it means there are so many safeguards along the way that were not there. do you separate the investment bank today? you have the vicar's reports in the u.k. which deals directly to its. you have systemically important organizations. clearly what happened in 2008 is a wake-up call for policy makers to make sure that whatever businesses present a risk, some sort of systemic risk to the economy than that this the fundamental proper role of regulation to make sure that it is in some way firewall so it doesn't have cost contagion. >> thank you so
